NUST MISIS together with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have conducted a panel discussion at the Moscow Urban Forum, “Megapolis and University: Investment Model of Partnership”. Martin Hinoul, an international expert in the field of science & investment and the Business Development Director of the Research and Development Center at K.U. Leuven, was invited by NUST MISIS to be a special guest at the event.
For the second year in a row, NUST MISIS has been ranked in the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (ARWU). According to ARWU-2018, NUST MISIS is in the TOP-100 in two categories: Metallurgical Engineering and Mining & Mineral Engineering. For Mining, the university was in the
NUST MISIS and PAO Severstal, one of world`s major vertically-integrated steel and mining companies, have signed a cooperation agreement to implement joint projects and create the Green Metallurgy Center.
From July 2nd — 7th, 2018, the VI All-Russian Summer Universiade in Boxing, which attracted 65 athletes from 21 Russian universities, was held in Omsk, Russia. NUST MISIS boxers won three Gold Medals and one Bronze Medal, and took 3rd place in team classification.
NUST MISIS is holding the intellectual game “Artek-Insight” as part of the cooperation between the University and the Artek International Children`s Camp. This joint project has been designed to develop and support talented students from regions around Russia. The project started in January 2018 and will last until the beginning of December 2018, covering 12 shifts throughout the year.
NUST MISIS Engineers Develop Forge of New Elementary Particles -Unique Target for the CERN SHiP Experiment
A group of NUST MISIS engineers has presented a unique prototype of a target to be installed for the SHiP experiment (Search for Hidden Particles) at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). SHiP`s aim is to discover three possible fundamental particles — heavy neutral leptons.
No Cracking or Freezing: NUST MISIS Scientists Demonstrate Properties of Impact-Resistant and Cold-Resistant Sandwich-Plate using Slow-Motion
Researchers from the NUST MISIS Center of Composite Materials and Biomimetix have demonstrated how their sandwich-panel development absorbs physical pressure. The punching process was recorded by a special camera that shoots video at a speed of 30,000 frames per second.
NUST MISIS scientists have applied the method of cryothermal processing to metal glasses and have figured out how it will help glass to become more flexible without losing its original durability. The research article is published in “NPG Asia Materials”.
Scientists from the Department of Chemistry at Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) and researchers from NUST MISIS have developed a new and simple method of synthesizing magnetic nanoparticles of ferrous oxide to be used for cancer diagnosis and therapy.
For the first time in the world, a group of young scientists from NUST MISIS have managed to synthesize a unique MAX phase with the inclusion of elements atypical for this class of substances — vanadium and iron. The innovative composition will provide the MAX phase with additional magnetic properties. The resulting hybrid material will be used in cutting-edge spintronics and micro-electronics.
An international team of scientists, including NUST MISIS’s Professor Gotthard Seifert, have made an important step towards the control of excitonic (lat. excito — “excite”) effects in two-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures. In the future, this research will help to create electronics with more controlled properties. The research has been published in Nature Physics.
The lipid membrane of a cell is the basis of every living organism. This membrane is an amazingly intuitive “fence” through which the cell communicates with the body, eats, protects against foreign invaders, and controls the flow of substances into and out of the cell. The complexity of it all is mind-boggling. Pores — optional holes in membrane — are the main tools of this biochemical “communication”. Pores act as a kind of gateway where scientists can actively study and describe cells and their functions.
The 14th International SHiP Experiment meeting (CERN) was recently held at NUST MISIS. During the meeting, the first CERN meeting ever held in Russia, more than 50 specialists from 12 different countries discussed current projects and the details of future work.
